Asus GeForce RTX 3060Ti STRIX GAMING OC 8GB GDDR6 PCI-Express Graphics Card – 90YV0G02-M0NA00AestheticA new shroud with metal accents mirrors the design aesthetic of ROG Strix motherboards. The side is lit with an addressable RGB strip that can be customized with Armoury Crate to sync up with other ROG products to create a uniform aesthetic.CoolingA MaxContact heat spreader efficiently transfers heat into a new heatsink that spans most of the card?s 2.9-slot footprint. On top, three optimized Axial-tech fans work in tandem to drive air through the entire array, helping to keep temperatures under tight control.Axial-Tech UpgradesThe blade count has been increased on all three fans, with 13 on the center fan and 11 on the auxiliary fans. The barrier ring on the side fans has been slimmed down to allow for more lateral intake and to provide better airflow through the cooling array. The center fan’s extra blades and full-height ring provide boosted static pressure to blast air directly onto the GPU heat spreader.New DirectionsTo bolster the specialized roles of the center and auxiliary fans, the rotational direction of the center fan has been reversed. This reduces airflow turbulence inside of the cooling array for another boost to the card?s overall thermal performance.It?s Cooler Out BackA wide backplate vent and shortened PCB allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled by the GPU?s circulating cooler design. A GPU bracket provides extra stability to the critical connection between die and heat spreader. The I/O bracket is made from stainless steel to protect ports and provide a more secure mount.Dual BIOSA conveniently placed Dual Bios switch allows quick selection between ?performance? and ?quiet? mode for basic customization of the card?s default behavior without software.EngineeringTop-shelf capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs are selected to effortlessly deliver hundreds of watts at a millisecond?s notice. Dubbed Super Alloy Power II, these components are soldered to the PCB using an Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process, ensuring accurate placement and a perfect joint every time.Software SuiteHardware and software come together to let gamers fully customize and control their gaming experience. GPU Tweak II enables tweaks and monitoring, XSplit offers a robust streaming solution, and wtfast can improve routing to game servers for a more stable gaming connection.ASUS ROG STRIX 3060Ti OC FEATURESNVIDIA Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors The building blocks for the world?s fastest, most efficient GPU, the all-new Ampere SM brings 2X the FP32 throughput and improved power efficiency.2nd Generation RT Cores Experience 2X the throughput of 1st gen RT Cores, plus concurrent RT and shading for a whole new level of ray tracing performance.3rd Generation Tensor Cores Get up to 2X the throughput with structural sparsity and advanced AI algorithms such as DLSS.
